Catherines (Elle Fanning) is a key figure in her success, as a leader and her team is starting to spiral when it comes to her ambitious agenda. The failure to free the serfs and the violence Catherines imposed is the reason for this lack of confidence, which is vital to Russia to showcase its skill in this classroom. Catherine is already under pressure and Enlightenment is crucial to her platform.
As part of this competition, scientists from other countries have come to Russia, and Peter (Nicholas Hoult) proves his love for Catherine by producing an invention that will knock other entries out of the water. Due to a limited time and a lack of scientific acumen (unless you count the terrible teddy bear he made in episode 4), Peter fails to steal the Norwegian invention.
Catherine''s father has come to stay in the family with her mother''s funk and greetings with a very unusual personal greeting. She has been left unmoored by her lack of immediate success. Fortunately, until Joanna starts nitpicking and the passive-aggressive levels are elevated.
In each episode of the second season of, we focus on Catherine''s relationship with her mother, and how it differs from what we see in Stapler. As part of the scientific revolution, Russia is divided into two things.
How close was Catherine to her mother?
Johanna (even the spelling is different in the picture) passed away at the age of 47 in Paris, France two years before Catherine''s coup. Elizabeth was Empress at the time, and Catherine had to ask her for money to purchase Johanna''s possessions she had stolen before she died. In addition to her five children, only Catherine and her son Frederick Augustus had three other children to marry off in the country.
Virginia Rounding, a biographer, notes that Johanna was always ambivalent about her daughter, who was almost died in childbirth and took 19 weeks to recover. There is a general degree of interest in the person who meets her, although also criticizing her for everything from her decor to the company she works.
How does Russia play a major role in the 18th century''s major scientific revolution?
Catherine''s key goals are to establish an academy of sciences, but Peter the Great had already instructed the establishment of the Russian Academy of Sciences his wife, Gottfried Leibniz, to initiate this facility the year after his death in 1725. His extensive travels also laid the foundation for his desire to bring the scientific revolution to Russia (opens in new tab) and Catherine''s work is a natural succession of this. The role Russia has played in the scientific community stems from two Greats and both Peter I and Catherine are instrumental in
Elizabeth did not share this interest for learning, and Catherines'' memoir (opens in a new tab)discusses the lack of academic intrigue. Elizabeth as depicted by Belinda Bromilow (who is the MVP of this season) is inclined to say old wives tales (particularly when it comes to Catherines pregnancy), but she is also not opposed to expanding her mind.
Is it possible that Russia invent the stapler?Or roller coasters?
Time to fact-check the inventions that will be featured in the science competition!
The trusty stapler (opens in a new tab) was first patented over 100 years after George McGill set the episode in 1866. Despite the fact that other staplers had been manufactured in France during the previous century, the one made by the Novelty Manufacturing Company in Philadelphia is known as the first true version of this paper-fastening device.
Dr. Vinodels (Julian Barratt) demonstration of the forceps he invented is frightening for pregnant Catherine, although these obstetric forceps were actually created in the 1600s (opens in new tab) and were already in use at the time of this episode.
Catherine''s reign came to an end in 150 years, and since velcro would be the first patented, the desire to do away with all those buttons is a valiant quest. Fortunately, Swiss electrical engineer George de Mestral (opens in new tab) did not use tree sap like Katya Velcra (Jane Mahady) did in this episode.
The Russian entry for the science fair is an impressive rollercoaster. Surprisingly, this is based on historical facts. In the 1600s, the first known rollercoaster was known as the Russian Mountains, which gained the ground ground the following century before the craze spread across Europe. Catherine was said to have one built at the royal residence in 1784 and was the first to put the rollers on this ride in 1784 (opens in a new tab).
